Are there any racquetball courts in the area for rent? I know the bigger gyms have them, but you need to be locked into some sick membership plan.

The Hilton right by 28 has pretty cheap racquetball, you can buy a little punch card pretty cheap and get a bunch of games.

I'm up for some racquetball if you guys need a challenger. I'm a member of Bally's (sick membership) but finding challengers on my schedule is tough. I'm hoping for a lunchtime challenge.

Sean: Do you just walk in and buy a punch card, then go play? They don't mind right? How much does it cost?


PaperPusher: which Bally's?


..and does anyone have any other information on racquetball in the area?

Dave,

I normally go to Landmark only because that's the closest one to my home. What do you have in mind?

Sport and Racquet may be another good club but I've never tried them.

I'd like to play, if my schedule can permit. I don't have a place to play, yet, but I'm open to suggestion.

No, I'm new to the area, and still looking for a place to play. (As well as a good bar, good Italian restaurant, etc.)

Good italian restaurant???? There's ten million good ones here:

mama's on rt 50, just past the circle in ffx
pulcinella, on old ominion dr in mclean
da dominico, on rt 7 in tysons (wear a tie)
and cary told me about a good one in fair lakes, forgot the name but it was good...

those are just a few I love. I also enjoy eating at the spaghetti shoppe in chantilly near IHOP, but that is "fast italian" and doesn't have much to it that I would call special, it's just really good food.

I've heard rumor that there's a community center somewhere just off of 50 near seven corners, where I live. Supposedly, you can play at the raquetball courts, but I have no idea about the price.

I found it:
Providence RECenter
7525 Marc Drive
Falls Church, Virginia

Here's the homepage, which includes the phone number, as well as price information.

Basically, you pay to get in, along with either $4 hour for the courts, or $20 for 10 hours. I did the math, and for 1 hour of play with the Fast Pass at the county resident rate, 1 hour would be about $7.27, not bad.

Pretty much all of the fairfax county rec centers have racquetball courts, as far as I know. That would include Providence, Oak Marr, and Wakefield for really nearby ones.
